Most scenic drive from Aix-to Villefranche de Rouergue

Jump to last reply

I will driving from the TGV in Aix to Villefranche de Rouergue by myself. I have a couple of options and was hoping someone may be able to shed some light on the 'most scenic' route. My choices are: quickest about 4 hours - which runs from Aix, through Arles, Nimes, Montpelier and then up through Millau and on to Villefranche de Rouergue. The other option is slower: 5 and a half hours up through Arles and Nimes again but heading due north up to Florac through the Cevennes National Park and then west to Villefranche de R. I have read a couple of reports saying how pretty some of the scenery is through this second route, especially the village of Sainte Enimie.

I shall be leaving Aix about 10.00 in the morning and whilst I am not in a hurry I would like to be at Ville de R by mid late afternoon.

Does anyone have any comments on these two routes? Any input would be appreciated please. For the sake of an hour and a half if one way is much prettier than the other I would like to know.

Thanks, Schnauzer
